Brazilian researchers have found that parsley, thyme, chamomile and red pepper, enhances the neuron formation and strengthens the connections between the brain cells.

The neurons made stronger connections which were sophisticated. Neuroscientist Stevens Rehen, the lead author, says that strong connections between neurons are crucial for brain function, memory consolidation, and learning.

The researchers say that apigenin binds to estrogen receptors which affect the plasticity, development, function, and maturation of the nervous system.
Thus, it delays the harmful diseases such as schizophrenia, depression, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
